It depends on what market you are trading. In crypto there are some restrictions on leverage issued by regulators.

1:500 should be the maximum. Leverage only amplify your trading, it doesn't make you a better trader.

You should stick with 1:100 or go as high as 1:200 in the beginning. This is the safest way of using leverage for trading.

Leverage is a double edged sword it magnifies the risk. The greater the amount of leverage on your capital the higher the risk that you will have therefore for small account use 1:30 leverage only.

I wouldn't say 1:100 is safest. That is very dangerous, even for the well experienced traders as well.
1:30 from that first reply is perfect, even for the experienced traders.
Small accounts can have 10x leverage as maximum, to me.

high leverage means high risk , its not true exactly, if there is any risk it is complete with nonsense planning or zero risk management, nothing without it.

If you are a beginner, I advise trading with lower leverage because using higher leverage during beginner stage could bring in more loss than profit.

Let me copy what I have said on the other thread.

I think I have already explained this before that the leverage doesn't matter unless you trade a big size or a lot of trades that will affect the margin % on your account. When using proper position sizing, you only need to know how much are you willing to risk per trade and the total pips from the entry price to the stoploss price. Leverage doesn't matter at all. If let's say you wanted to open a trade that will be a 50-pip stoploss and you are willing to lose 500 dollars, then you can open a lot size of 10 dollars per pip or 1 lot size on a standard account. Regardless if you use a leverage of 1:1, 1:30, 1:50, 1:100 or 1:3000, the risked amount of 500 dollars on that trade will still remain the same. Please do not mislead newbie traders. Anyone who knows how to properly set the correct sizing on each trade, knows this.
Trading is a marathon, not a sprint.

Leverage just gives us buying power. It's the skills that need the most to be profitable in scalping. A trader needs to understand the market very well to become successful in scalping.

1:10 or 1:20 seems to be the safest if you want to risk less. Good luck to you.

1:30 is the safest leverage if you don’t want to risk so much. Although it also depends on instruments which you are trading.

I prefer 1:200 on most trades. It is simple and safe, works for me.
Adjust the leverage according to your risk tolerance. Newbies shouldn’t take high leverage.

30X should be the maximum leverage as it is a double edged sword which works both ways

That’s right and you can also choose to lower the leverage in case the risk is high on this one.

Leverage is very important in forex trading. With leverage a trader can manage more trades with minimal capital. It proposes you that with a little capital you can make larger profit. Leverage ends up being more perilous when we use big lot contrasted with capital. For my trading I use 300:1.

Yeah but 1:30 is already pretty low and as per my experience, you shouldn’t go that low. If you don't risk anything, how will you make any profit? Forex is all about risking and making money. Can’t do that without risking, right?
@Dawn I usually keep it up 1:10 and I’m okay with it. The profits are decent and the platforms (Etoro, Turnkeyforex) have no limitations on my use of leverage. However the important thing for me is to play safe and learn at this point. So I stand by my strategy of risking low.
